1. Episode #318: Cravings of the Heart, Soul, and Human Nature with Cory Rosenke Cheryl Ilov 1:00:30

Cory Rosenke is an author, theologian, pastor, teacher, and coach who spent most of his childhood in the debilitating grip of poverty, isolation, and even homelessness. He found his reprieve by exploring the majestic but lonely mountain slopes of the Rocky Mountains, along with a walking stick, a book, and his faithful and beloved dog. 

Cory’s consistently curious mind was always asking the question “why,” especially in regard to human nature, and many of the books which captivated his attention were not the typical choices for young readers.  

At the ages of eleven and twelve, Cory was eagerly exploring Laws and Republic by Plato, Ethics by Aristotle, and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. He especially loved “Where I Lived, and What I Lived for,” by Henry David Thoreau, because Cory felt that it seemed to meet him where he was at. His early teen years found him exploring a new province (Alberta) and embarking on new literary adventures, including the diverse works of Sigmund Freud, Edmund Burke, Plutarch, and C. S. Lewis, just to name a few.

Cory’s recently published book is titled “The Magnetic Heart of God: Understanding the Five Cravings of Your Soul.” Today, Cory remains as inquisitive as ever, spending his days as he always has, reading, writing, exploring, shepherding, and forever watching and wondering.

Cory shares much of his learned wisdom and insights and addresses many important questions regarding the heart and soul of humanity and human nature, including the proof that mankind has souls, how we can discover meaning and purpose in our lives, why people do what they do, why the world is falling apart, and what it means to be made in the Image of God, and how we can reconnect with our soul.
